The New York Times bestseller from Margaret George, author of Mary, Called Magdalene  and Elizabeth I

With her amazing ability to summon the voices of historical characters, Margaret George tells the story of the woman whose face "launched a thousand ships" in Helen of Troy. Laden with doom, yet surprising in its moments of innocence and beauty, this is a beautifully told story of a legendary woman and her times. An exquisite page-turner with a cast of irresistible characters--Odysseus, Hector, Achilles, Priam, Clytemnestra, Agamemnon, as well as Helen and Paris themselves--and a wealth of material that reproduces the Age of Bronze in all its glory, Helen of Troy brings to life a war that we have all learned about but never before experienced.

Editorial Reviews

Delicious. (People)

An impressive feat of research and imagination. ItÆs no mean trick to resurrect not only ancient Attic politics and lifestyles, but the atmosphere of a time in which the gods truly spoke. (Diana Gabaldon, author of Outlander)

A feast . . . George leaves us with the most coveted prize of fiction: a world . . . we wished existed, and that thoroughly does between the covers. (Chicago Tribune)

Fresh and vivid. (The Washington Post)

What Ms. George has created with this book is a great summer read: realistic characters, engaging plots and enough mythology and Homer to make it all interesting. (The Dallas Morning News)
